The finale of Peter Capaldi’s first series as the Time Lord was always going to be divisive. Danny Pink and Brigadier Lethbridge Stewart returned from the dead as Cybermen to save the world as Clara and the Doctor seemed to part ways and Nick Frost made a cameo as Father Christmas in the final moments.
Unsurprisingly, Twitter had a lot to say – so, here’s a round-up of how Doctor Who fans reacted to the long-awaited Death in Heaven.
Many viewers felt that Steven Moffat had hit exactly the right note.

Well done Steven Moffat you have done it again. Excellent build up but an aboustly god awful finale. So many unanswered questions #DoctorWho— Nathan Hoar (@TrulyNaff) November 8, 2014
Capaldi blows the doors off as the Doctor, but Missy acted everyone else off the universe tonight. #DoctorWho— SG (@sharonGOONer) November 8, 2014
Missy is practically perfect in every way. #DoctorWhoFinale— Brad Collins (@bradcollins128) November 8, 2014
My initial response to Nick Frost's cameo at the end of Doctor Who was a long-lasting hysterical laughter after my jaw dropped in awe.— Sammy (@arkhamsam) November 8, 2014
Whoever thought that having Nick Frost play Santa Clause in Doctor Who was a good idea deserves a pat on the back and a Medal of Honour.
